Om SymbolBritish Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course

The next course will start Saturday 12 March 2016: Explore the background and depth to yoga we can only hint at in our usual classes. Woven with the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali this 60hour course gives time to enjoy, experiment and create your own self-practise.

Throughout you record your progression with self-reflection in a journal format and experiment to create your own self-practise. The certificate course can be a stepping stone towards BWY teacher training. The full course is across ten Saturdays in Cumnor Old School and possible al fresco venue. Additional fees are registration fee of £60, BWY membership of £30 and ideally two yoga books. My yoga library will be available of books, magazines and media.

The current group are really enjoying the breadth of the course and a few already considering going onto further study with the BWY modules in Meditation and Pranayama as well as the Foundation II and Teaching Diploma.

Introduction Day for Foundation: Saturday 23 January 2016. 11.30am to 1.30pm, stay on and bring lunch to share. A morning to have a taster of the course and meet the other  students and discuss course content etc.

Students are guided to learn and work in poses safely, with adjustments given as needed according to their abilities and time needed to progress with their strengths & weaknesses. Hazel offers classes tailored to different needs, developing more flexibility and mobility for creaky bodies; meditation for those under stress; or encouraging stretching for those training with weights.

Saturday Workshops are a different theme held monthly. Held in different halls to make the most of open spaces for al fresco yoga if summer weather allows or move to the snug yet light and airy rooms for the colder season.
